Aggravated Burglary in Killiney, Co. Dublin on the 15/10/14

The Gardaí at Dun Laoghaire Garda Station are investigating an aggravated burglary that occurred at a family home in Killiney, Co. Dublin on Wednesday the 15th October 2014.

A couple in their late sixties were at home in Killiney, Co Dublin, when four armed raiders entered their home. Their grandchildren aged eleven and eight, were staying with the couple overnight. It was around 8:30pm when their ordeal began. Four raiders armed with a sledgehammer, jemmy, lump hammer and screwdriver terrorised the family. While one of the men, kept watch over the grandmother and two children at the rear of the house, the three other raiders ransacked the house. The grandfather was beaten several times as the raiders looked for a safe and other property. There was no safe, but the raiders got away with money, jewellery and the couples jeep, which they abandoned nearby. They locked the family in the utility room as they made their getaway.
